Frequently Asked Questions

We are happy to answer your questions even before you know you have some. 

iCE LiNK is free of charge for the first three years of use. You only have to pay a connection fee and the costs for your own hardware.

Will I incur additional costs?

The test phase of iCE LiNK (regardless of the version) is free for three years. If you purchase a machine from Horizon, there are no additional costs for setting up iCE LiNK. Do you want to retrofit iCE LiNK? Then please contact us and we will find the right solution for you.

In any case, you will need an edge server. This PC connects all machines on site and sends the data to the cloud. This PC is not included with iCE LiNK.

Do I need my own hardware?

Yes, although iCE LiNK is a cloud-based server, Horizon machines need a way to transfer the data to it. For this you need an edge server on site. This PC must be provided by you.

You can access iCE LiNK with any device that has a browser. This includes desktop PCs as well as tablets and smartphones. We recommend that the screen has a resolution of at least 1,920 x 1,080 pixels. There will be a mobile view for smartphones in the future.

You have the option of downloading all your data as a CSV file before your membership expires. Your data will be deleted from the cloud on request. Just get in touch with us.

What about data protection?

iCE LiNK is operated via the servers of AWS (Amazon Web Services) and therefore offers a very high level of protection. Your data is processed and made available to you via our parent company Horizon International.
